What do you do when you need an authentic locomotive and full train for your period 1800s western, plus a huge stretch of unused train tracks? If you're super producer Jerry Bruckheimer and Oscar-winning director Gore Verbinski making The Lone Ranger, you simply build it yourself from scratch. All of it. Watch the video for incredible behind-the-scenes story of how they did it!
In theaters July 3, the new Lone Ranger is told from the point of view of Tonto (Johnny Depp), the loyal Native American companion to the masked rider (Armie Hammer) with a belt full of silver bullets. The film also stars Tom Wilkinson, Barry Pepper, James Badge Dale, Helena Bonham Carter, William Fichtner and Ruth Wilson.
